George Frideric Handel; Arranged by John Rutter
R678 Discovery Miles 6 780 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This deeply expressive arioso, which opens Handel's Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne (1713), was performed at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, Windsor, on 19 May 2018. Originally scored in D major for counter-tenor, with trumpet and strings, the work is here arranged by John Rutter for performance by soprano and organ (or strings and organ continuo), with or without solo trumpet, in the slightly lower key of C major. This package contains (1) the orchestral score in C major, and (2) the instrumental parts (solo trumpet, 1st and 2nd violins, viola, cello, bass, organ continuo) in two versions, in C major and D flat major. The D flat version of the parts is to enable performance with modern strings but natural trumpet, the trumpet playing in Handel's original key of D major but at baroque pitch (A = 415).

for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This festive arrangement of a traditional German carol features an English text, translated and adapted by John Rutter himself.

Magnificat (Sheet music, Full score): Francesco Durante Magnificat (Sheet music, Full score)
Francesco Durante; Edited by John Rutter
R410 Discovery Miles 4 100 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

for SATB and chamber ensemble A splendid curtain-raiser to Vivaldi's Gloria, Francesco Durante's artful Magnificat has long been misattributed to his pupil Pergolesi in a version for four voices, not five. Durante's vocally richer five-voice version has been chosen for the Sacred Choruses volume, which this orchestration accompanies, and merits performance as an alternative to the familiar four-voice version, which may or may not have been Durante's own work.

Jackson's imaginative setting features a melismatic line for tenor soloist and aleatoric writing.

De Profundis - Night Raid (Sheet music, Vocal score): Cecilia McDOWALL De Profundis - Night Raid (Sheet music, Vocal score)
Cecilia McDOWALL
R69 Discovery Miles 690 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

for SSATB and organ This atmospheric anthem by Cecilia McDowall commemorates the First World War. It sets a stark English text by Dr Joseph Spence alongside Latin text from Psalm 130, with the words 'In memoriam' added. The lower parts sing Spence's English text, conveying the relentless hardship of life in the trenches with declamatory and constantly developing vocal lines. The sopranos, meanwhile, repeat the Latin words from Psalm 130, providing a striking contrast in their constancy and otherworldliness.

Every thing that grows (Sheet music, Clarinet part): Bob Chilcott Every thing that grows (Sheet music, Clarinet part)
Bob Chilcott
R202 Discovery Miles 2 020 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

for SATB, clarinet, and piano Every Thing That Grows is an meaningful and uplifting setting of Shakespeare's Sonnet 15. Chilcott employs captivating vocal lines, a flowing piano part, and expressive clarinet interludes to reflect on the text's theme of mortality, with a profound closing section calling the listener to reflect upon the immortalising couplet 'And all in war with Time for love of you, As he takes from you, I engraft you new'.

Songs of Farewell (Sheet music, Vocal score): Hubert PARRY Songs of Farewell (Sheet music, Vocal score)
Hubert PARRY; Edited by Robert Quinney
R199 Discovery Miles 1 990 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Parry's Songs of Farewell were composed over the final decade of his life. The elegiac tone of the Songs may also reflect a sense of loss caused by the First World War - in which some of Parry's most promising students at the Royal College of Music lost their lives - and a decline in national confidence, expressed in a different manner in Parry's famous Jerusalem of 1916. The motets are among Parry's most eloquent and concise works, and deservedly form part of the rich canon of British choral music. This edition, by Associate Professor Robert Quinney, Director of the Choir of New College, Oxford, is the first to offer a critical assessment of the autograph manuscripts, held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. It offers a significant earlier version of a section of the fourth motet, rescored passages from the fifth, helpful notes on performance, and supporting online materials. A comprehensive and practical edition, it also provides a clear and elegant presentation of the text.

Sarah Quartel
R87 Discovery Miles 870 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

for SATB, piano, djembe, and cello This evocative anthem, from the larger work Snow Angel, is a piece of two halves. Opening with a haunting cello line, the first section ('God Will Give Orders') is mystical and ethereal, until a vibrant figure from the djembe lifts the music into the second section ('Sweet Child'), which is uplifting and bold in character, with a distinctly African feel and an effective a cappella ending. The instrumental parts are included in the vocal score, and a version for upper voices (SSAA) is also available.

They are at rest (Sheet music, Vocal score): John Rutter They are at rest (Sheet music, Vocal score)

R73 Discovery Miles 730 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

for SATB unaccompanied Described by Elgar as an elegy for unaccompanied chorus, this mournful, reverent, and dignified setting was composed for a service commemorating Queen Victoria on the anniversary of her death. The text is by Cardinal John Henry Newman, whose poem The Dream of Gerontius was set by Elgar in one of his most enduringly popular works.

Flowing and expressive, it features homophonic sections, melismatic lines, and optional soaring soprano solos.
